Make your own glass cleaner, and get beautiful, streak-free windows for less.

What You Need:

  • White vinegar
  • Water
  • A spray bottle

What You Do:

Fill the spray bottle with equal parts vinegar and water. Then, use as you would any other glass cleaner.

Benefits of Using Vinegar as a Glass Cleaner

  • inexpensive
  • no harsh chemicals or fumes
  • effectively removes fingerprints and other window grime
  • doesn't leave streaks

Warnings:

1) Do not reuse empty cleaner bottles. Buy a new bottle for your glass cleaner.

2) Always label the contents of your cleaner bottles.

3) Keep out of the reach of children and pets.

A Special Warning:

Many glass cleaner recipes found on the web contain ammonia and/or isopropyl alcohol. According to an article in the New York Times, these ingredients are poisionous when swallowed or inhaled in large quantities.
